On the pluses of power rationing

38 minutes and counting – this is how much the laptop’s battery is going to hold out. I come home from school hoping to catch the electricity unawares. But as soon as I get home and am ready to do some serious work, pfff, it is gone! But some part of me is always ready to see the silver linings on the cloud and I think it must be a blessing in disguise for the following reasons.

42 minutes and counting; I know earlier I said 38 minutes and…; take it up with the computer manufacturer 😈

a)     First and foremost, it gives you someone to blame for things delayed or postponed though in your heart of hearts (what kind of fuck ass cliché is that anyway?) you know that they would have been delayed or postponed anyways.

b)     You can use the daytime to read novels.

c)      It gives you impetus to learn touch typing. But you still can come home with an uncharged battery. Be bono bijemer tiru neber. For the time being, there is room 21 which can serve the purpose

d)     Does it make you plan better? Sorry it came out as a question. Does it make you plan better. 

e)     You eat a lot of injera beqibe. You come home from a long day at work and you are expected to chop onions in candle light (how romantic!). What do you do if it was you? I said what you gonna do? Call the ghostbusters    just heat some butter, pour it judiciously on injera and sprinkle some mitmita on it; and it is good to go, baby! Fast, simple and with a hell lot of saturated fatty acids. What about the carbohydrates though? You know that our body cannot carry out a net conversion of fatty acids into glucose. Cooking pasta needs a relatively longer time. Hulet wedo ayhon.

Our mothers and fathers were on point when they said chigir beqibe yasbelal

f)       I have mentioned this betedegagami, being the pervert that I am. Am I the only one worried about the effect it may be having on the population growth rate of the country? You may disagree that it is an advantage; but you know what, we can export people!


21 minutes and counting

I won’t lie  – some of it I wrote  today.
